Twitter is for the birds!

November 6, 2009…..I predict that Twitter will go by way of Instant Messenger in 9 months!

I think people will realize that it’s better to live their own lives than become engrossed  in what others are doing every second of their day!


R.I.P.   Twitter



Yay!! You’re getting married and you’re planning all of the days events.


And now your big day is here and you’re pumped!  Let’s party!

Well…let’s remember where we are and what we’re about to do!

Yes, you’re going to celebrate. But remember, we are not at a family christmas party where no one will pay attention to you getting drunk and crazy.

This is your wedding day…all eyes will be on your every move.

There is nothing more embarassing than watching a plastered bride and groom getting married.

It’s even more fun when the entire wedding party is baked.

And just think, you’ll have great photos that will capture those precious moments.

Whose Wedding Is It?

August 19, 2009

Letterhead SOS 09_edited-1Ever meet a bride (or maybe you are one) who has no say-so about her own wedding.  The mom is running the show. Telling her what is allowed and what is acceptable and who she should hire and how she should act.  It’s pitiful!

But…I suppose it has always been that way in their relationship.

Sooner or later these brides are going to have to leave the nest and fend for themselves. Seems to me that a wedding should be the time and place to make a clean break.

If mom and dad are footing the entire bill, don’t complain. You asked for it!

On the flip side…whose wedding is it? Ease up a little and let your daughter spread her wings.  Even if you think she’s marrying a loser.

Congrats….You’re getting married!!  So much to do. So much planning.

First thing brides do is gaze in awe at magazines and websites.

So many pretty pictures of gowns, beautiful venues, gorgeous cakes, dazzling flowers, sumptious feasts, awesome limos.  The list goes on for brides to choose the right vendors.

And now you’re done with all of the sampling of tasty treats, touring the venues, smelling the flowers and looking at the photo albums.

That’s about it right?  Wait…what about the entertainment?

You almost forgot the entertainment!!  How did that happen?

Because, they’re are no pretty pictures of a Wedding DJ hosting the perfect event as your Master of Ceremonies, On-Site Coordinating, Perfect sound level and the right mix of music.

The Wedding DJ is known as the “Mystery” vendor. 

Brides are attracted to the shiny, happy, pretty photos of venues, gowns, cakes, flowers and limousines.

A Wedding DJ is a “talent-based” service. We have nothing tangible to show you.

Most brides (and grooms) think that all a Wedding DJ does is stand behind a table and play music and solitaire.

This could not be further from the truth!

That is why we always meet with prospective brides and grooms. Because we have to paint a “mental picture’ and sell an emotion.

This is why a true, professional Wedding DJ will not throw out a price over the phone. We need to meet with you to discuss your thoughts and ideas and to inform and educate you about the many services we provide.

“The old chinese proverbsaid it best…If at first you don’t succeed….”

Brides and Grooms getting married on New Years Eve seems very romantic. And it is. Just remember that you are getting married on night that we in the entertainment biz call…”Gravy Night”

Anyone in the entertainment business knows that whatever is booked on NYE means $$$

That being said, whatever you think your entertainment will cost you…Add another grand if it falls on NYE…

Why do so many people in this country want to participate in the recession?

What you say? Choose? Yes..choose.  It’s a choice.

This country is run on emotions and most people are sheep.

Think about it…What is any different about what we need  to function today verses 10 years ago?

We still gotta eat, drive, buy clothes, gas etc.   The only thing difference is that certain talking heads are telling us that we are in trouble and what do we do?…We panic.

Tell someone they are bright, beautiful and unique and they will excel with confidence.

Tell them they are worthless and, well, you know…

It’s time for an attitude adjustment people!  Quit being led by the nose and choose not to participate in the recession.

Start your own business or just think of something you’re good at and charge for it.  Sure feels good to be in control of your future rather than being inder the watchful eye of a “boss” wondering if she’ll let you keep your job.
